Centene Corporation Selected for Ohio Medicaid Contract

ST. LOUIS, June 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Centene Corporation (NYSE: CNC) has been notified by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) that Buckeye Community Health Plan (Buckeye), Centene's Ohio subsidiary, has been selected as one of five health plans to be awarded a contract to serve Medicaid members in Ohio, effective January 2013.

Under the new state contract, Buckeye will operate statewide through Ohio's three newly aligned regions (West, Central/Southeast, and Northeast). Coverage for both CFC and ABD recipients has been combined into a single contract for each region.

The ODJFS on April 6, 2012, initially announced five health plans had been selected as part of the state's recent RFA process. Buckeye was not among the plans selected at that time and was one of five plans that filed a formal protest on April 16. After review of applications, the protests, and other correspondences from the applicants and, after a rescoring of the applications, the ODJFS has recommended Buckeye to be awarded a Medicaid contract.

"We have long been committed to carrying out our mission of delivering innovative healthcare solutions that result in healthy outcomes for Ohio's Medicaid recipients, and we are pleased to continue our partnership with the state of Ohio," said Steven White, President and CEO of Buckeye Community Health Plan.
